Vertigo, one of the most common vestibular complaints presented in otolaryngology clinics, has diverse origin and etiology. Pathophysiology of vertigo thus plays a major role in determining its pharmacotherapy. Vertigo is mainly a multisensory syndrome in which three sensory systems plays a key role- the vestibular system, visual system, and somatosensory system; however the vestibular system is most commonly implicated. Depending on their etiology though, vestibular diseases can be treated with drugs, physical therapy, psychotherapeutic measures and rarely surgery.
